Ukemi as usual, followed by sword for the majority of class. Focus was on basics of grip, footwork, kamae, moving the blade with the body, and finally strategic concepts.

Class began with ukemi as usual, with the major part of class focused on sabaki (足捌き) in general. We evaded multiple attacks from uke for a minute or two, uke being both unarmed and armed. Then we moved on to recovering from a punch with 3 timings: late, simultaneous, and early.
